Producers Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum said Allen is set to start shooting his untitled new comedy this summer.
This is the writer-director's second time filming in France and his eighth film set in Europe.
Allen will reunite with the cinematographer, production designer and costume designer he worked with on some his previous European productions.
Allen's latest movie, Blue Jasmine, will be released in July.
It stars Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin.
